Finger Lakes Woodturners Association March 2015 Meeting

Finger Lakes Woodturners will hold our regular March club meeting on Thursday, March 19th. The meeting will be held at the new Isaac Heating and Air Conditioning facility and will begin at 6:00pm with a show and share of members work. A quick business meeting will commence at 6:45pm. Following the business meeting we will have our featured event.

This month we will feature FLWT Vice President, Sam Tischler with Turning a Lamp.

This is a unique project for the lathe. Sam will be showing us how he turns a decorative and functional lamp. This project is a deviation from the more traditional turned items that we usually see and it will be very interesting to see how it is done. I’m sure that the techniques used will lend themselves to further exploration of not only lamps, but also other functional items.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn something new…we hope to see everyone at the meeting!
